16 Mar 14 UTC Seriously?
Congratulations VB, i have no clue whatever France and Germany were doing since it is not as if one could not see that coming from a damn mile away.
16 Mar 14 UTC Pretty much. I was waiting for a group to turn but alas
16 Mar 14 UTC Yes -- I was a bit surprised as well, though by the last turn I think it was just a matter of time. Russia certainly helped break up the logjam in Turkey, and I am still not sure what Germany was doing with that last set of moves. All in all, a good time for my first solo as Austria.
16 Mar 14 UTC Of course I helped break in there. I was about to be killed of, if no pressure was put west. Only that way I could ensure my place in the stalemate line. Sadly my teammates did not realize what was going on, including England
16 Mar 14 UTC Nice win, congrats!
16 Mar 14 UTC Hey. I helped too by attacking Germany! I could see that a draw wasn't happening so I wanted to see you win and get the survive at least. Congrats VB!
16 Mar 14 UTC Party I go back to Spring/Autumn 07 when you attacked Russia meaning a loss of 3 units, Smyrna, Amkara and your own base Sevastopol ..... can you explain the logic of giving Austria 3 SCs .....I actually reported you for metagaming such was the nature of your moves. Care to explain why you threw the game to Austria?
25 Mar 14 UTC I was russia, and not attacking it. So i am not certain what you mean. But if you mean me letting him into Ankara and stuff... there was a very good reason in that.
And all in all it is better to have one winner and survive than get thrown out of the draw in this tournament as i see it.
